The Columbia Compass is the comprehensive plan – or “blueprint” – for how Columbia, South Carolina will grow and develop over the next ten years.
The City of Columbia conducted research and public engagement on the community's population, natural resources, land use, transportation, housing, community facilities, cultural resources and economy. The plan, adopted in 2020, acts as a guiding policy document for the City, and the recommendations of the plan will be developed for implementation during the coming ten-year period.

What role does it play?
Envision Columbia is City Council's vision and strategic plan for Columbia as it approaches its 250th anniversary in 2036. City Council's strategic plan is updated every two years, and dovetails with the Columbia Compass planning process and recommendations.
Meetings and events occurred throughout the planning process, and opportunities for engagement will continue with implementation. Planning Division staff is also happy to come speak to your neighborhood or organization about the planning process or recommendations of the plan.
